If you haven't gotten yours yet, check out the girl with an Empire State of Mind's top five reasons to buy her sneaker collection!]
1. What Men Will Want
They're super, super cute. I think women will know--'cause I'm designing for women--women will know that boys always get the better sneaker. That's what I'm trying to make sure doesn't happen anymore. I want guys to be like, Man, that's crazy; I would wear that!
2. Chic Appeal
You gotta buy it because it's sleek and it's tough at the same time. It's not too boxy and big, but at the same time it has a toughness to it that I love.
3. I Said So!
You have to buy it because I said so ... and they're so comfortable!
4. Be Inspired To Be Different
You have to buy [them] because I think it gives you an attitude a little bit. When I put on these (points to high top sneakers), I get an instant attitude. But a good attitude. All of a sudden I feel extra tough, and on it! I just feel kinda different. So [they're] gonna inspire you, and bring things into you that you didn't know that you had.
5. Make Everyone Jealous
The fifth reason you should buy [them] is to make all your friends jealous! [You can say], "Sorry!"
You decide. Will you hit the store and express your love for sneakers just like Alicia?
